SCHOOLS GRADES RELEASED BY D.O.E.--ALL SCHOOLS IMPROVE MARKS

The Indiana Department of Education recently released school grade information based on the data from the 2016-17 school year.  We are pleased that each WRV school has raised their school grade over performance from 2015-16!  Students and staff at each of the buildings are to be commended for their hard work and perseverance in raising scores in a number of different areas.

White River Valley Elementary School earned the only "A" grade at the elementary level of all schools in Greene County!  Mrs. Staggs and her staff worked really hard to focus on students' skills in language arts and mathematics, and the results clearly show that student growth is taking place at all levels.  The students had a perfect rate for passing the 3rd grade IREAD test, and WRV led the county in scoring on the ISTEP+ series.

White River Valley High School earned a "B" grade.  There are a number of factors involved in the high school grade, including the graduation rate and the College and Career Readiness rate.  WRV received all of the points possible in both of these areas as the graduation rate was over 90% for the fourth consecutive year and students earned a number of dual credits for credit in the CCR category.  Student test performance in math and language arts will continue to be the focus as Ms. Kelley and her staff work to improve our academic programs.

This was the first year that WRV received a middle school grade as the district reorganized in 16-17 to three buildings with different grade levels.  The school earned a "C" grade for the DOE, but experienced two letter grades of growth in the process.  The implementation of a Response to Intervention program, a full 90 minute reading block, and the teaming strategies are all proving as effective means of improving student growth.
We are proud of the hard work and dedication of our students and staff as we work together to improve and give our students the very best academic programs possible. Our staff is continually charged with the challenge of building academic programs that bring continuous improvement in student growth!
